Ouch! "I hadn't decided yet," Said interim mayor Dugger about 11/06 Mayor's Election

Polls shows "not!" Nobody loves interim mayor
& vice-mayor enough to vote for them so what's
a politican to do? Both picked up their packets
to file with 25 endorsing signatures. Vice-mayor
Alexander said "I haven't decided yet." So much
indecision in our town's just awful!

He's also the one that sued the town and event-
ually got town to pay his attorney fees. Great en-
dorsement to run for mayor...right? Not! No

Last one to pick up packet is Chris Wilson
another Nolensville resident who ran twice be-
fore and lost both times. Rarely comes to meet-
ings. But maybe this time he can go the dis-
tance to win! We need all the good guys!

It's not to early to encourage good candidates
to run for two alderman's seats and of course for
Mayor. This is June only two months till August
17th when candidates must file with 25 signat-
ures. And then Sept. & October and suddenly
its time to vote in Nov. '06.

Nolensville desperately needs a new qualified
and prepared Mayor
who will hopefully appoint
a new full time 24/7 town manager to do what
needs to be done professionally. Part time part
timers time has come and gone. No more out-
rageous conflict of interest. Eliminate real
estate agents, most if not all contractors, title
people and facilitators that get paid a referral
fee. Town hall is long over due for a thorough
"spring cleaning" in the fall...Nov. '06.
May have to use a "roto-rooter" firm undo
some who will refuse to leave a "sweetheart"
position. That is getting paid for doing little.

IDEA? Why not encourage all local candidates
to participate in some scheduled DEBATES!
Let's use the next four or five months to really
get involved in this process. It certainly deserves
everyone's best efforts to get the best candidates.
Tell us what you think? Send in comments ASAP.

Great idea! DEBATES! Why not town is still small enough and we could meet in school gym. Let's do it!
Voters rarely know who and why they are voting for? So lets get them the info they need! Even better get Aubrey Short to be the referee, host whatever...he knows
all the procedure stuff.

I can assure you that the metro man will emerge from the rubble trying to convince all that he has gone thru the 12 steps and is now a reformed man deparate to show everyone he is a new man. Just ride up Nolensville road and see what metro planning and alex the pudmaster are all about.

I do not know Chris Wilson but have this observation.
He has run unsuccessfully twice before.
He doesn't care enough to even attend meetings and is almost an unknown, so what are his qualifications?
Will he now attend a few meetings just before the election as he did the last 2 times, and again lose interest in town government if he again loses?
Hopefully some qualified candidates will step forward to give the people good choices.

Will they recieve PAC money and who did they take it from? That would be a good question !

I hadn't decided there are the words of a truly dedicated individual.

I would urge anyone approached by a candidate with a petition to not sign it unless they know the individual enough to support them.
That way if people can't even get enough support to qualify, they can't muddy the waters of such an important election.
It is everyone's RIGHT to run, but that doesn't make it right to take even a few votes from qualified candidates.

What makes someone who "rarely comes to meetings" a good candidate.
Why should people think that makes him a "good guy?
Why should we support him?
What has he ever done for Nolensville?
How about someone with a history of public service who knows a lot of people and lots of people know them instead?

Hey 9 56

Are you cming out in support of the pudmaster, He was employed with the old Metro boys and has had long track record with the developers at heart. Jimmy yhr Jesyer need not apply!
